Lecturer – Haydn Gambling
This 6 day course is split into two, 3 day modules delivered annually over a one week period from our Adelaide base. It’s designed as an intensive career upgrade to quickly progress therapists from good to excellent practitioners. On the first module, days 1 & 2 cover a mechanico-adaptive approach to understand the inter-relationship the spine has with the pelvis and lower extremities. Therapist learn quick scan tests to detect dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system and 45 Jones Counterstrain treatment techniques for the foot and ankle, knee, pelvis, sacrum, coccyx, spine, thoracic cage and clavicle. Day 3 shifts to a myofascial chain model with additional quick scan tests to identify myofascial dysfunction and an additional 35 Jones Counterstrain treatment techniques to alter myofascial tone imbalances to create lasting reduction of local and remote pain.
On the second module, day 1 covers a viscero-fascial approach with quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the body’s “central tendon” and how this connects to the myofascial system. Therapists will learn 25 Fascial Counterstrain treatment techniques to alter visceral dysfunction and it’s associated musculoskeletal pain. Days 2 & 3 covers quick scan tests to identify dysfunction in the neurocranium, TMJ and dural fascia. With 40 Jones Counterstrain, dural and sutural manipulative techniques, therapists will leave the module with a powerful approach to treat craniosacral dysfunction, headaches and pain elsewhere in the body as a result of the fascial and neurological connections. Registration for this course includes automatic membership to the “Therapist” forum and potential access to the associated on-line course and videos. This course is designed for post graduate practitioners who have completed the Assessment & Treatment Intro course.
*IMPORTANT – Please do not register for this course unless you have previously purchased and attended “Assessment & Counterstrain Treatment Intro
” (or former IMT1 equivalent) as this is a mandatory prerequisite!
Really great informative course that has provided me with a range of new assessment and treatment options for multiple systems in the body.
The cranial section and screening tools are particularly helpful for more complex patients that aren’t responding to traditional or popular approaches.
I liked having the 6 days split into 2 modules to allow some time to practise and refine skills between sessions.
Would highly recommend Haydn to anybody looking to forward their expertise in the manual therapy field
I thoroughly enjoyed the 2 x 3 day courses, the course was primarily hands on which was great having so much practical time
The pre-reading was very relevant and thorough. Pre/post assessments helped enforce the amazing outcomes that Counterstrain can achieve.
Haydn was a fantastic trainer. Overall, the course covered a vast amount of assessment and treatment strategies and I am very excited to take this knowledge and further my manual therapy career and pursue further training
